Jaguar S-type and S-type R Service and Repair
Motorcars Ltd started in 1972 as a repair and restoration shop for all British Classic Cars in Houston, Texas. As Jaguar and Land Rover become daily drivers and the dealers sold more and more units, our focus changed significantly to becoming a more service and repair oriented facility. We have maintained our British Classic Car commitment, but we focused new ideas and people on developing ourselves into Houston’s Jaguar repair experts so much so that in fact, we are THE independent Jaguar service and repair specialists.
A Closer Look At The Jaguar S-type and S-type R Models
Jaguar joined in the 2000 retro styling frenzy with the S-type X200 body. This model revived the nameplate of Jaguar’s 1972 S-type. Since the S-type came at the time of Fords ownership, it shared the Lincoln LS platform.
The supercharged S-Type R joined the lineup in 2002. The S-Type R was powered by the newly revised 4.2-Litre V8 with an Eaton M112 supercharger. The S-Type R also sported many unique features such as 18″ alloy wheels, wire-mesh grille and body modifications. It also had the “R” badging on the boot lid and both front fenders.
The S-Type received a mild facelift for model year 2005 featuring redesigned front and rear aprons, a slightly modified grille, remodeled rear light clusters, an aluminum bonnet, and a new non-USA 2.7-litre V6 diesel engine with 207 hp (154 kW). The windscreen washer jets were incorporated into the windscreen wiper arms. There were no changes made to the cabin interior. 2006 to 2008 models featured no fog lights.
Motorcars Ltd has maintained many, many of the Jaguar S-Type cars since they were first introduced.
Motorcars Ltd takes great pride in keeping all of the variants of the Jaguar S-Type on the road. Motorcars Ltd offers full maintenance, repair and service on the Jaguar S-Type.
The stock front upper shock bushings failed quickly in the Jaguar XK8 models and caused loud banging noises in the front suspension. Motorcars Ltd designed and produced a replacement bushing set for the XK8 which provided a cost-effective solution to the prone-to-fail upper shock bushings. We have sold and installed hundreds of the upper shock bushings as a part of our commitment to make these cars more reliable and comfortable to drive for the long term.
Whether it is a simple fuel injection service, cylinder head work or engine rebuild (yes, we even have our own machine shop), oil change or brake replacement or repair, Motorcars Ltd has the facilities, tools and staff to perform to exacting standards.
